The world of the extreme is common, even every day, on the Internet – particularly on social media platforms like SnapChat and Instagram. Chinese social media platform Weibo is no different.
One of the many risky, even deadly, practices that has grown out of this era of ubiquitous social media is the extreme sport of roof topping wherein an urban climber scales increasingly taller buildings and takes pictures at extreme angles, to the delight of his or her followers of course.
Often these pictures are spectacular in terms of the views and angles they capture, but the risk entailed in getting them should warn anyone away.
